Where Does My Joy Come From - 10/7/16

Friday, October 07, 2016

Where does my joy come from today....

... I found out that Spotify puts together a playlist from my own playlists, plus songs that I might like according to the songs I listen to. So ingenious! I have a 40 minute commute to work (one way), so I always listen to my playlists (which I consider are the best in the world, of course). That just made me so happy this morning, that I couldn't stop singing all day.

....a new co worker in a different department wanted to talk bad to me about our new receptionist who indeed has a bad attitude and is just a really interesting hiring choice. When the co worker said "Well, your new receptionist...", I just cut her off smiling and said "Yes, isn't she wonderful ? Let's make her feel welcome!!!" and walked away with a smile. She did not know how to respond, and she only knows me as really friendly and always praising everyone. She did not know what to think, so I watched her be more careful and considering possibly that our receptionist deserves a second look. Well, great. It's more love we need in the world, not more hyenas.

.... came home to my hubby having made me a really nice spicy vegetable soup. He had wanted to take me out, but I love staying in and not spending money on food choices I am likely to regret. Such a great Shooting Star Mascot, that man. Keeping me within my calorie limits and doesn't even realize it.

    It is definitely awesome to have him in your corner! Way to go hubby! That was also fabulous what you did by merely turning the tables on gossip. Kudos to you my friend! Way to keep a positive attitude and let your light shine.
    God bless you and keep you on your journey! Have a fabulous day!
